Neil Gaiman quote, designed by ModCloth!

After hearing English author Neil Gaiman’s commencement speech for this year’s graduating class at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, we couldn’t shake the memory of his words on mistake-making. Our graphic designer Ryan was equally taken by Gaiman’s advice, and fearlessly took on the task of bringing this Quote of the Day to life.

    I love this, especially the “mistake” in the type. Keep ‘em coming (quotations, not mistakes).

    So great, not only the quote but also Neil Gaiman! I think another great quote would be ‘Thanks for the doubt’, by David Bowie… it’s one of the quotes of my life! If people don’t doubt me, I never endeavor to try to do better to show them that ‘I can do it’.

    This is really very nice but I can’t help thinking that if you just left the mistake in there and didn’t highlight it, it might work better..?

    I love the “insert e”

    That “e” was a nod to his wife’s video of her song “Want It Back”, I think.

    And yeah, I second that comment, Tamara…it would make a great poster.
